Health Issue Walk/Runs

Health issue walks promote program awareness and often include a fundraising component to fund research or support a nonprofit organization. Although health issue walks may not be designed specifically to encourage people walking, participants have often been affected by the health issue and an organized walk may encourage them to walk during recovery.

Sample Health Issue Walks
March of Dimes Walk
Start! Heart Walk (American Heart Association)
Step Out: Walk to Fight Diabetes (American Diabetes Association)
Making Strides Against Breast Cancer (American Cancer Society)
